1967 Chateau la Dominique

Post by AHB » 11:22 Sat 02 May 2015

Lovely clear brick red; 90% opaque. A delightful nose of delicate raspberry and lovely basil leaf. One of those wines you can sniff for ages. Medium bodied on the palate, bringing fragrant raspberry, gentle tannin and a lovely elegance which all combine with the acidity to give a lovely elegant palate. The tannins dominate the aftertaste and lead to a lovely "Wrigley's Fruit Salad" flavour finish. A lovely wine. 90/100. Drunk 15-Apr-15.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

1967 Château la Dominique: palate had great grape and cherry fruit, and great length. Praise to the balance and the structure. All-round excellent. Some sweetness.
